What type of medicine can you get for genital warts


Genital warts must be treated by a doctor.

As self medications can cause permanent scar and even worsen the symptoms.

Don't use over-the-counter medicines meant for other kinds of warts.

Terrasil is effective in few cases so as in your case,it didn't work so you should ask your doctor for other treatment options which gives you good results.

Treatment may include-

Prescription medicine that you apply at home several times per week

Imiquimod (Aldara)

Podophyllin and podofilox (Condylox)

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA)

The warts may be removed with surgery, including:



Laser therapy

Surgical excision (cutting them out)

If you have genital warts, all of your sexual partners must be examined by a health care provider and treated if warts are found.

Even if you don't have symptoms, you must be treated to prevent complications and spreading the condition to others.

I hope this helps.
